Please note the below appeal from the President of Ammucare India:
“Little Dhanya, two and half years old twin daughter of Ms. Maheswari and Mr. Shanmugha Kumar, needs your help. She was born deaf and thus never learned to speak. Her twin brother Dhanush, was able to hear when he was born, but had to undergo surgery to correct his defective speech. He did so a few months back at Medical College Hospital, Alapuzha, and has to attend speech and is fast progressing as the training continues.
However, about his twin sister Dhanya , Dr. Muhammed Noushad, Senior Consultant and Cochlear Implant Surgeon of Dr. Noushad’s E.N.T. Hospital and Research Centre, Cochin, certified on August 04, 2010:
“… Dhanya is diagnosed as having bilateral profound SN Loss. She has to undergo Cochlear Implant Surgery for restoration of hearing and speech. The total cost of surgery and implant will come around Rs. 650,000 IRS.”
This is the cheapest possible option for little Dhanya’s surgery – Mr. Shanmugha Kumar (her father) says that the cost of surgery at the Government Medical College Hospital in Calicut , will be around Rs. 750,000 INR, and is even higher in some other institutions which have facility to do this surgery.
The delay in surgery will, surely, tell upon the results achieved. The Kumar family is economically weak and cannot afford to meet the huge expenses in connection with the treatment advised, from the meager income earned. He appeals to all the kind-hearted to help his poor child to come to the world of normal children.
